Be part of the world's first workshop dedicated to this topic.

The ASPRS will be holding a presentation of the world's first workshop dedicated to Direct Georeferencing. This full-day session is being offered in conjunction with the XXII FIG Congress ASPRS/ACSM meeting taking place from April 21-26 2002 in Washington, D.C. Presented by Prof. Karsten Jacobsen (University of Hannover, Germany), Prof. Naser El-Sheimy (University of Calgary, Canada) and Mr. Joe Hutton (Airborne Systems Manager, Applanix Corporation, Canada), this workshop is intended for both business and technical people in the photogrammetric mapping field.

Over the last decade, Direct Georeferencing has progressed from a theoretical concept to the recognized, accurate and efficient approach to photogrammetry it is today. With all three presenters being pioneers in the field of direct georeferencing, this workshop promises to be equally accessible yet educational for novice, advanced and first-time users of this groundbreaking technique.

The workshop will take place on Saturday April 20, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, show hotel for the FIG Congress ASPRS/ACSM meeting.
